Halifax based think tank the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies says they think that the four Atlantic Canadian provinces should sell their private liquor operations to private interests…and they suggest that the crown corporations could get as much as $5 billion dollars on the open market. Their studies show that New Brunswickers and most other Atlantic Canadians are pretty unhappy with the current booze buying situation. They use the Alberta example…Alberta privatized it’s liquor operations in 1993 and 25 years later people there are able to buy a wider range of alcohol products (almost 22,000) at a larger number of locations (2,100) than ever before, with no detectable increase in alcohol-related social ills.
